Nelson museum Appeal

Nelson province will have its own provincial museum in the very near future if the plans and efforts of the museum trust board and its supporters reach fruition. Recently a public meeting was held in the council chambers when fund-raising proposals were discussed and explained. A campaign is to be launched by the board to raise a minimum of $25,000 the campaign to run from March 2 to April 17. An "Isel Lady" contest is to be held during the campaign, each lady working flat out to raise funds for the museum. These are shown Below. At Left, campaign director, Mr Norman Bourn, adjusts an ornamental tree on the model of the museum displayed in the council buildings.
